Course Description

Explores the nature and consequences of money in American politics and why, at this point in history, we find ourselves embroiled in the most significant debate over campaign finance reform in over thirty years. The debate goes to the heart of the U.S. Constitution, pitting the 1st amendment rights of speech and assembly against the perceived fairness and efficacy of a Republican government awash, some claim, in increasingly unaccountable money.
